No, I do also fully endorse that statement too. It just seemed you guys started tearing into the kid worse than needed.

as long as you keep things safe, do it responsibly and wait until you are older to actually try to join the sport then good luck
LOL! I'm a nice guy, just misunderstood mostly

Good on you

Keep on reading, talk to some game hosts to see if you would be allowed to come out and help them set-up and clean-up the field, or take some pictures.

It really helps if underage people are willing to do some work on the administrative side of things rather than the "OMG I WANT 2 PWN N0000BZ" side of things.

it means the non playing side of the sport, helping game hosts as a volunteer. whether or not that is as a guy who just helps on the side lines, camera man or helping set up and take down he field after the game is done depends on who you are helping.

a great way to get an early start ( age 16 ) is to go out to a few games and just watch/interact with players. maybe asking to hold a gun or see how they play.

Lay off the poor guy. He has suffered enough snide comments. You guys can really go overboard sometimes. Play with ur gun as much as you can. Get a feel of it. Its always a good start from the basement cuz its all you and noone to criticize your aim and you can get confortable carrying the gun. Best of Luck.

naa its all good, people are really mean because we get a lot of younger kids ( 17 and younger) who dont read the FAQ, think they know everything, ask the calssic question of " WeRe can i HAZ gunz for cheep" or they do really stupid stuff with airsoft that they can get their hands on ( playing in puplic parks, streets and bringing it to school to show friends). This brings bad exposure to the community and thus we discourage minors from playing until they are 18 ( which is a community imposed limit except in ontario ). a large percentage of the people mentioned above get snide or rude when told to get age verified or to wait until they can be age verified and so we respond in kind. over time this eventually works on our nerves and we just start off as mean without giving them a chance.


there are minors who are known and respected/tolerated in the community, shirley ( mr. hitman ) is one of these few.

im too tired to type mroe so hope this is enough
